Ah! I spotted the food delivery robots I had heard about... One was crawling on the sidewalk and queued behind the others.

How do I order something? And is it ok to sit at one cafe and eat food delivered from another?

@jackalope If you're making pasta with cream as in Italian cuisine, good soy cream works fine. It should look like this:

If you want to make pasta con besciamella, make a bechamel sauce with oil, flour, laurel/bay leaf, nutmeg, and almond milk.

Ravioli burro e salvia (butter and sage) ๐Ÿ˜‹

These ravioli are stuffed with tomato and mozzarella, but spinach and ricotta is most common (and, in my opinion, also better tasting).

The sage must fry in the butter until it turns crispy (and not burnt), and light brown particles appear in the butter. Drain the ravioli and then brown them in the pan with the butter for 30 seconds before serving.

TIL: there are workplaces in Japan, where woman have a 'decided order' in which they allow each other to get pregnant. Not following the order can lead to 'maternity harassment' (ใƒžใ‚ฟใƒใƒฉ).

Just tagliatelle with tomato basil sauce, real parmesan cheese, and a little extra virgin olive oil ๐Ÿ˜‹

Simple recipes are the best.

I think Impossible Meat tastes better than Beyond Meat, but I should A/B test them to be sure.

Even if you don't care about how farm animal are being treated, isn't it cool to see the advancements of food tech?

We still have to rely on plants to synthesize all the nutrients that go into vegan meat, but cutting off animals from the human food chain is a *huge* optimization. Perhaps 5x more efficient. It will be crucial when we must feed 12B humans.

Beyond Burger with contorno of Tuscan-style peas (cooked in olive oil, garlic and black pepper).

The second side is kale with vegan feta cheese and lemon juice (but for a proper Tuscan dish I should have used rucola instead).

Also, the burger should have been "al sangue" (rare). That's how most people like their steak in Florence.

Now, the next big move the Steering Committee could do to improve their velocity would be switching to .

Pretty please! ๐Ÿ™

15 years ago, I claimed that FSF copyright assignments were harming more than the perceived benefit of suing violators more efficiently.

By turning away a large number of contributors and forcing the others through a cumbersome legal process, they have given a competitive advantage that, eventually, led to GCC becoming less relevant.

It's probably too late to save GCC, but I'm glad they fixed the most egregious pain point ๐Ÿ‘

We will never be able to get this perspective in real life, unless SpaceX launches a Dragon just to observe the re-entry.

@codewiz Apparently, mammals don't like it but the birds don't mind it! And this is beneficial to the dispersal of chilies.
